Unlocking

To start fighting in these arenas, you first need to unlock several combos in the warrior skill tree - Horizon Forbidden West: Melee Pits - locations, walkthrough - Secrets & Collectibles - Horizon Forbidden West Guide

To start fighting in these arenas, you first need to unlock several combos in the warrior skill tree. It's best to attempt these pits once you have fully developed a tree. This will make it much easier to complete them, plus you won't end up stuck while attempting them.

The basics

You will find 4 such arenas in the game. In total, you need to complete 15 challenges. These consist of short battles that require you to complete a task in a specific way. This means that you are given information about the moves you are supposed to make at a given time. Your job is simply to repeat them and perform the combos correctly.

After completing all the 15 challenges, you will gain access to a quest that will allow you to face Enduring and compete for the achievement. You can play on a low difficulty level to make it easier to win these challenges.

Enduring

After beating all the challenges, you will be given a task - Horizon Forbidden West: Melee Pits - locations, walkthrough - Secrets & Collectibles - Horizon Forbidden West Guide

After beating all the challenges, you will be given a task. You need to head the northern part of the map (pictured in the screenshot above). Your task is to defeat Enduring. This will complete the quest, you will get the Defeat the Enduring achievement and your spear will be upgraded.

In the fight against Enduring, you don't have to follow any exact sequences provided by the game. An effective method is to simply spam her with light attacks that cause her to stagger, giving you the opportunity to use heavy attacks. You can do this over and over until you defeat the character.
